Little Windmills: The Country Kids Charity financially supports seriously sick and injured Australian country kids by subsidising things like medical costs, travel and accommodation. We relieve the financial burden on families during their darkest times and allow mums and dads to focus on what’s important, the well-being of their little one. Help us impart Hope, Health and Happiness to those who need it the most.
This month we are asking you to get creative and incorporate Little Windmills onto a child’s lunch bag, which they can hand out to children in need.
Create a Lunch Bag
Create a lunch bag by quilting, embroidering or hand decorating it with the Little Windmills logo.
Download the Little Windmills embroidery design to include on your projects.
Free Craftsy Lunch Bag
Check out the Free Craftsy Lunch bag, which would be ideal for this project.
Paid Craftsy Lunch Bags
Otherwise, browse through the paid lunch bag patterns on Craftsy to find something a bit more unique. These would also be the perfect gift idea for your own children, friends or family.
Sending in your donations
These projects can be posted to any of the Echidna stores or you can send them directly to:
Little Windmills The Country Kids Charity
Suite 2, 106 Sixth Avenue
Be sure to include your name, postal address and contact details with your donation.
How long do I have to create this project?
The Little Windmills sewalong will run from 1–31 October 2018. However, this charity is always in need of children’s lunch bags or quilts so feel free to donate at any time.

We’ll be giving away a number of prizes throughout in the year. To enter, simply take a photo of your finished project and post it to our Echidna Sewing facebook community!
Things to remember
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing and embroidery, this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
If you have your own sewing/embroidery blog you can save the following badges and post it on your blog entry, linking back to this page.

Your October project is Little Windmills, Lunch Bag, but you then mention (under How long do I have to create this project) that from 1 to 31 October Comfort Quilts for Cancer.
